I have done very well after graduating from FTC, but this is the exception, not the norm. Most of my classmates have either disappeared or do not work in the field (Medical Coding). I did not find the career assistance to be helpful even in the slightest. I did not receive one referral, interview or even a lead from career assistance. When you graduate from here you are on your own. I also had one instructor who was clearly out of her depth on the subject of health insurance. Having been in the field for over four years now, I am still irritated at the complete lack of guidance on one of the most important aspects of medical billing and coding. But the one thing that really demonstrates exactly how much FTC cares about you, the item that identifies exactly where you as alumni stand, is that I get calls about three times a year asking me if I am interested in attending their Medical Billing and Coding Program. I must tell the poor telemarketing sap that I graduated from the course. Really disheartening to get those calls. That being said, if you are considering medical coding as a career I urge you to pursue it and get your CPC or CCS certification. The field is expanding and opportunities abound!
The online program is easy and informative with most of the instructors/professors being very good with outstanding knowledge. Now the staff for this school is a complete different story! The Orlando Campus is one of the worst school staff I could imagine for online students. FASFA payments are never delivered to the student nearly on time, you can NEVER make contact with anybody at the school TO INCLUDE the Dean and the "open door policy". The only way I was able to get anything done administratively at this school was to make a complaint through the VA which forced a response from them. They are horrible to get any transcript or information after leaving the school, this school is a hands down nightmare and I would highly recommend not even looking in their direction, go across the street to Kaplan College.
